Long Plain Brumbies by Melanie Roberts


Available to buy on…

On our way to Coolamine Homestead in the Koscuiszko National Park, we saw these two by the side of the road. Rather than flee, as Brumbies usually do, these two spent several minutes checking us out.

For my International friends Brumbies are what we call Wild Horses here in Australia.

    great shot Mel , they look in good condition. There are a fair few brumbies out that way.

  • Thanks Lisa, Raquel and I saw lots of them. At times there were 30+ but we couldn’t get close enough for a good shot even with Raquels equivalent 500mm lens

    I notice your shot is a bit clearer than Raquels and they are standing better for you.
    Did you yell and wave your hat around and beep the horn after you took your shot, and before she took hers?LOL
    Great shots and sounds like you girls had a fun trip.

  • Thanks Garth. No I didn’t distract the horses for her. The Brumbies were a couple of hundred metres away. I had my SLR with a 300mm lens and set to continuous shot mode. Raquel was using her Lumix set to full zoom (think she said it was equivalent to a 500mm lens). I think mine are clearer because she said that looses some of the control over exposure and aperture when it’s in full zoom.
